"Kurst Elefant Heavy Tank Destroyer...."
Chorton@sky-river.com (Honolulu)
I felt the need to build and represent a little known aspect of the Epic battles fought on the Eastern Front. These Armored Giants were of often thought of as to heavy, hard to maintain, and just hulks. However after doing my reasurch these were very effective killers of any tank they encountered. This is a wonderful kit to build, kept me interested the entire time. Very good fit of parts, but watch the front fenders for proper final fit. The easy link tracks are easy to build, but the numbering to end up with proper sag was incorrect. I ended up needing to add extra links. I left off the zimmeret due to the complexity of the kit. And in photos some tanks did not have it applied. Due to the fact these beasts were so rare ... Less than 90 units built you should build one for your collection.

"Nice kit"

Nice build but the tracks are a pain in the butt.Would not recommend for beginners

 
"Another great hit by Tamiya"

I started this after building the Nashorn. Quite a difference between them. The Elefant is bigger but not as many parts as it doesn't have an open fighting compartment. It went together so well I'm a little disappointed that I don't have anything to gripe about, that's my nature. It took about half the time to build as it took for the Nashorn. Here's a suggestion. Get the Nashorn and Elefant kits. Build the Nashorn first then the Elefant. You'll be amazed at how quickly the Elefant goes together. Would recommend this kit for any level of modeler with possibly a little help with beginners on the treads, a lot of parts for them attention may wander.

 
"elefant"
blaster27@metrocast.net (maine)
never thought I would have one of these ,let alone 2.cant wait to get the 2nd. first one I cammode ,next one will be dark yellow.even the small parts fit well.the tank is so good I had to buy a second one..its a large tank, about the size of a tiger2. Tamiya does it again.5 stars.for around 70.00 you can't go wrong.only 4 left at the battle of Berlin and I have 2.A must have for a tank collector.cons plastic tracks' like the rubber version.the figures are a nice addition. I bought after market tracks to replace the build type tracks.
